This photo is unusual as it is on a ticket for admission to see Little Forest Sims, The Blind Musical Wonder. The price of admission is fifty cents. The following article, Four Year Old Blind Musician, was in the Minnesota paper, The Appeal, Saturday, June 3, 1922: “Little Forest Sims, the son of Rev. and Mrs. J. Sims of Cleveland, Ohio, was born blind four years ago, and is a fair rival of “Blind Tom” as a pianist. According to Rev. Sims, he was offered $10,000 a year, with family expenses to enter him on the big time vaudeville circuit.” In addition, under the Afro-American News Notes section of the Sandusky Star Journal, Thursday, February 3, 1921:” . . . the boy prodigy, Forest Sims, a blind boy. . .was born October 16, 1917, in Birmingham, Alabama. To see him and to study him one is convinced he is endowed with unusual power. He plays and imitates birds and most of nature’s sounds. This unusual child will appear in concert at Second Baptist Church, Monday evening, February 7.” Another report in the New York paper, New York Age, July 8, 1933, edition reports another performance at Brook Chapel in Hillburn, New York. While the young performer is not a resident of West Virginia, the ticket is a small indication of the types of entertainment available to the community. The images below are the front and back of ticket.
